    Newport News man, suspected of killing family, was charged with assaulting wife in June


    A Newport News man suspected of killing his wife and three stepchildren had already been charged with assaulting her earlier this year.

    snip

    John Ragin had been arrested on June 14 and charged with simple assault after his wife told police he had thrown her against a dresser, causing a laceration to her face.

    snip

    Each of the four had apparent knife wounds, and all four had been exposed to fire and burned.

    John Ragin and his 5-year-old son were located with relatives in South Carolina. Crystal Ragin was the biological mother of all four children.

    An article in the Clarendon Citizen that talks about not only the murder of John Ragin's wife and three children but also the murder that he committed in 1991. He was no longer on parole as of 2007 according to the article. Also in the article it states that Ragin pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter in order for the murder charge to be reduced.

    Also here is the website for Clarendon County. You can click on Clerk of Court and do a search for John M Ragin. John was sentenced to 30 years but was released early. He also apparently tried to sue the county (if I am reading the information correctly) but did not win. The link below hopefully takes you to the correct page for John's information.
